The great comeback of the State

The tackled issues since the beginning of the European elections campaign as the social movements show that a real turnaround is taking place in public opinions. For decades, and not only in the Anglo-Saxon world, the trend regarding the State disengagement was the object of a large popular consensus. We see today a turnaround which is not without links with the rise, in the Western world, of populism. The reestablishment of borders and the stabilization and even the stoppage of immigration are regalia missions by nature. The trial against the globalization and multilateralism is examined by these ones who want ...

The European elections and the climate

Environmental issues and the global warming are at the top of the proposals inscribed in the Renaissance list of proposals for the European elections, a list which has the support of “La République en Marche”, the president of the Republic political party. This preoccupation is legitimated but has it really the full significance it is attributed to it in this debate? The first question to which it is necessary to answer it about the future alliances to be constituted between the elected people groups which will have seats at the European Parliament. The two main groups which would emerge ...

The American economy : miracle or mirage ?

The publication of the first estimation of the American GDP for the 1st 2019 quarter has given the opportunity to enthusiastic comments as the last unemployment figures, the best for 49 years. With a 0.8% growth, i.e. an annual rhythm above 3%, the American economy has invalidated the analysis which were forecasting for that period 0.5%, due, partly, to the shutdown. The stoppage of the country administrative activity, provoked by the disagreement between the White House and the Congress about the increase of the public debt limit had generated the put in lays-off of a part ...

France : Is it going so well?

The economic policy lead in France by the government is going in the right direction and results are testifying of it. It would not be appropriate to change the cape. At the latest, it is necessary to proceed to institutional reforms and to some adjustments of that policy to take into account the social disease which is expressed through the “yellow shirts” movement. Such is, in substance, the message delivered last week by the president of the Republic. It is based on the last statistical publications about growth, public deficits, foreign trade and employment. In despite of that, we don ...

Le nouvel Etat-stratège

LE NOUVEL ETAT STRATEGELe dernier livre d'Alain Boublil, le nouvel Etat-statège (Editions de l'Archipel) est paru le 5 février 2014.

Le livre apporte les réponses de son auteur  à la question qui est, en France, au centre de tous les débats politiques: "Que peut-on attendre de l'Etat aujourd'hui ? " Et il formule plusieurs suggestions sur l'exercice du pouvoir tirées de son expérience passée auprès de François Mitterrand. Observateur de l'économie mondiale comme conseil des nombreuses grandes entreprises qui ont fait appel à lui, il trace un portrait de la France d'aujourd'hui bien moins pessimiste que ce que l'on entend parfois, à condition que chacun fasse preuve de lucidité sur ses propres comportements. 

Les exigences ont certes été exacerbées par la crise. Mais y faire face est de plus en plus difficile car l'écart s'est creusé entre les attentes de chacun et la réduction des marges de manoeuvres publiques du fait des règles internationales, de l'endettement et des contraintes environnementales.

En dix chapitres, Alain Boublil dresse un bilan sans complaisances, prend la mesure des possibilités et des limites de l'Etat et il ouvre des voies nouvelles pour l'action publique. Il évoque le sauvetage de l'euro, le fardeau de la dette et le ras-le-bol fiscal, l'Etat-patron de Colbert à Jean-Marie Messier, le retour du complexe vis-à-vis de l'Allemagne et les nouveaux outils de l'Etat-stratège dans la mondialisation face aux défis industriels, aux enjeux de la transition énergétique, à la "dictature du CO2" et à la révolution du gaz de schiste. Et il met en garde contre les dérives de l'Etat-spectacle, qui gènent l'efficacité de l'action publique et les facilités de l'Etat-guichet qui débouchent sur le clientélisme.
